• Our viewer question is from Tom in Fremont, CA:
OK, so the HD media wars are now over. Since Blu-ray is the winner, I went and bought a PS3. It's the best deal out there for a good Blu-ray 1.1 player. So, now I would like to know what is a good Blu-ray disc to buy that will really show off the capabilities of the PS3? What movie out there on Blu-ray is the best for this?

• Folding@Home Update: We are still holding at Number 13. However, Jason from Cincinnati is hooking us up with some serious fire power. He is a IT Director for a private school and has about 950 machines at the school. He will be deploying the F@H client to as many of the machines as he can. He said that from the hours of 4pm to 7am, 400 computers are in idle. I think we, and Stanford, can use an extra 400 CPUs folding away. Don't you? Thank you Jason!
